And our Evolution Collection doesn’t just include Evolution Walkers, but also includes a number of useful Evolution Walker accessories and add-ons like curb-climbers, cup holders, anatomical hand grips, brakes, replacement baskets and trays, carrying bags, and more. Explore our Evolution Walkers below.
The Evolution Walker Collection: The Benefits of Walking
As people get older and as they face different health challenges associated with aging, they tend to reduce their overall mobility, which can lead to a further decline in health. But it doesn’t have to be that way!
Purchasing a product from our Evolution Walker Collection will provide you with the opportunity to improve your health and wellbeing by staying active. Not only that, it will keep you more independent for longer, allowing you to accrue the many benefits associated with physical activity, which include:
By engaging in the simple act of walking, your body’s heart rate will increase, your blood pressure will be lowered, and your heart will become stronger, something that can help you avoid the perils of heart disease. Studies show that women who walk 30 minutes per day reduce their risk of stroke by as much as 20%. That number can go even higher if you decide to increase the pace of your walking.
For those facing the challenges of osteoporosis, walking can help you avoid any further reduction in bone mass. Wellness newsletters and some studies showe that by walking for just 30 minutes a day, post-menopausal women can reduce their risk of experiencing a hip fracture by up to 40%.
Better Sleep, Better Mood
For those between the ages of 50 and 75, taking a 60 minute daily walk has been shown to be less prone to insomnia. With better sleep, you can have a better life! And the benefits of walking don’t stop there. Walking also releases a natural painkiller, endorphins, into the body. The more you walk, the better you feel.
Stronger Joints and Muscles
Walking doesn't just improve the muscles in your legs, it can also improve your abdominal and even your arm muscles. By continuously improving your range of motion, you can shift pressure away from your joints to your muscles. And don’t forget, most joint cartilage has no direct blood supply. Because joints get the nutrition they need through movement-inspired circulation, walking brings the oxygen and nutrients into your joints, improving health as a result.
Customize Your Handle Height and Seat Height
Each of the products available at Healthcare Solutions comes in a number of sizes, meaning you can find the perfect fit, no matter your size, shape or mobility level.
Evolution Trillium Series
For example, our Evolution Trillium Series, all weighing in at only 14 pounds, comes in a “Mini” size, with a seat height at 18”, a “Regular” size, with a seat height of 21”, or our “Tall” option, with a seat height of 24”. Buy the product that matches you perfectly!
The same flexibility is available for handle height adjustment. The “Mini” comes with a handle height of between 29” and 32”, the “Regular has a handle height of between 31.5” and 34.5”, and finally, the “Tall” option provides a handle height at between 34.5” and 37.5”. We’ve got a handle and seat height option for all.
Evolution Xpresso Zero Series
Not to be outdone, the Evolution Walkers also come in the Xpresso Zero Series, designed with superior strength and stability in mind. Much like the Trillium Series described above, this product can be purchased in three sizes so that it fits you perfectly, meaning that if you happen to be carrying a little extra weight, seat height is not the only element you can adjust.
Featuring a new padded seat cushion and wide back strap pad for extra comfort, the Xpresso Zero has excellent weight capacity (up to 300 lbs), seat width options in a number of sizes, and it also comes with an all-new braking system, a collapsible folding basket, and is easily one of the strongest and most stable Evolution Walkers on the market today.
Evolution Xpresso Lite Cable-Free Walker
The Xpressor Lite Cable-Free Walker is both strong and lightweight. It also has a cable-free braking system for extra stopping power. Cable-free brakes are an advantage that allow you to comfortably adjust your speed, or lock those wheels into place when you’re stationary. And in case you’re out and about in wet weather, this walker has a center folding mechanism and durable waterproof covered foam cushion over a rubber seat.
Along with a collapsible and removable folding basket, an 18” seat width, and a number of easy to adjust features, this option with the cable-free braking system is a winner, and also one of the strongest and most stable options you can choose.
